Woman resuscitating dying Covid positive husband by breathing into mouth

Renu Singhal, seeing her Covid-19 positive husband gasping for breath, tried to resuscitate him but couldn't save his life. Even as she performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on her husband, Ravi Singhal died on her lap inside an auto outside a hospital in Agra, India.

Renu Singhal, a resident of Awas Vikas Sector 7 in Uttar Pradesh's Agra, had brought Ravi Singhal (47) to the Sarojini Naidu Medical College (SNMC) and Hospital after he experienced breathlessness, reports India Today.

Renu Singhal took an auto from her residence in Sector 7 and reached the government facility.

As his condition deteriorated, in desperate attempts to save him, Renu even tried to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to him. But, Ravi died gasping for breath. 

Photos of a visibly distraught Renu went viral on social media.

Reports of Covid-19 patients dying due to the shortage of oxygen and beds in the hospitals have become common in the city. Overwhelmed due to an unprecedented rise in the number of virus-infected patients, hospitals, running out of medical oxygen and beds, are now turning people away.

The hospitals' refusal to admit patients due to the unavailability of beds has left people running from pillar to post either to get their ailing family members admitted to hospitals or to procure medical oxygen and medicines. Or it is a combination of the two factors in some cases.
